Comments: I just found that It's a waste of time to ask Jeeves anythin' ??

King size is standard length, maximum width (I believe it is like two fulls wide). A California King (they never had one, only Emperor Norton) is the same width and several inches longer. To my knowledge there is no established mattress size for a tall skinny person who sleeps alone.

We have this dinky little clip things that stretch across the corner of the sheet (under the mattress) that hold it on. Really hard to describe but maybe I could photograph it if you care. You can attach them (and detach them) easily but they seem to stay on well.

I just asked Jeeves and learned that a standard king is 76" x 80", a split king is 78 x 80, and a Cal king is 72 x 84.

You are a much better man than I, Senor. I tip my sombrero in your honor.
